SCCS Conference

A CCS future for Europe: catalysing North Sea action

The creation of a Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) industry is imperative if we are to achieve global carbon targets and avert the worst impacts of climate change. It is also achievable if we start delivering the projects that will, from CO₂ source to storage site, build confidence and prove the technology.

The progress of CCS in Europe is a story of highs and lows, yet the technology remains firmly on the agenda as Member States now debate climate and energy policy to 2030 and beyond. This conference will focus on the North Sea region and its unique set of assets as an enabler of CCS for Europe. It will bring together European experts from government, industry and academia to explore the policies and practical opportunities that can help deliver climate clean-up while ensuring Europe’s economic resilience.
